Hey guys,

We are performing what is sure to be an unforgettable show tonight for our Russian fans in Moscow's Red Square, in celebration of the world premiere event for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Our production team, along with director Michael Bay, have put together an incredible setup amidst a breathtaking setting. I wish you could all be here to witness this performance in person, but since you can't, we have partnered with MTV and VH1 to air segments of it worldwide.

The premiere event and our performance of "Iridescent" will be highlighted on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, VH1 Classic and Palladia at 8:55pm ET/PT tomorrow, on June 24. A 30-minute piece will air next week on June 30 in English speaking countries. Stay tuned for details and times.

I would also like to thank our fan, Wan Muhammad Azzim, for his winning entry in our "Iridescent" artwork contest, which you can view below.

I can only imagine that they like it because of this black-white thing, because it also fits the design of the video, ect. I personally think it's not so special, I agree in the point that the effort isn't really recognize.
Many comments say what makes annoying.
The winner can be really lucky.

I have to admit that I'm dissapointed in the contest like most of you and especially how it's been handled.

1. The official rules were poorly displayed and most people obviously didn't read them at all, hence a flood of multiple submissions from each contestant and many more infringing upon third party rights (photomanipulations using copyright pictures of Transformers, Linkin Park, the moon etc.).

2. There was no feedback at all in between concerning the obvious breach of rules.

3. The only feedback that we got were a couple of features that were randomly chosen and a few of them also infringed upon third party rights (which really pissed me off since I'd have to assume that they're not sticking to their own rules here...).

4. I don't really get rid of the feeling that they didn't even look through the submissions carefully. And obviously they didn't even look through the submissions which had been most popular & with the most views/comments/faves (so WHY did people have to favorite them when it didn't matter anyway?).

I don't want to sound arrogant, nor do I want to boast when I say that mine is one of the most popular artworks (and I was actually one of the few who stuck to the official rules and created an ILLUSTRATED ARTWORK on my own without using any images that simply don't belong to me) in this contest, but when I attended that Summit in Hamburg I showed Mike my artwork. He had never seen it before and even asked me if I took part in the contest. Needless to say I was kind of disappointed by that reaction. They obviously didn't even notice it, although Mike loved it. His reaction to the piece itself was awesome at the Meet&Greet, but yeah...you get what I'm trying to say, right?

I'm not saying this, because I'm pissed that I didn't win (you can believe me or not, it doesn't matter). But I would really, REALLY love to know how they chose this winner! It seems to me it was too damn random and many good artworks I've seen on there have been simply ignored.

I'm not okay with people bashing the guy who won. It's not HIS fault that he was the lucky one who got chosen.
Yes, it's true. He broke a lot of rules like stealing an already existing wallpaper and just placing a couple of layers over it.
Or submitting 9 versions. Or adding the watermark...the list goes on. You get the drift.
And yes, it IS unfair. But stop bashing the guy, it really isn't his fault.

And if this is the design the band was looking for. Great. But in my opinion...I just don't get it. Sorry.

So, yeah. My two cents about the contest. I'm still kinda miffed about all of this, but nonetheless I'm proud of myself and about what I've created. It'll take a good spot in my portfolio. ;) But needless to say, this was the last time I took part in a LP contest.

Wait, i just compared the winner image posted above with his entry on deviant ART. They're different. On the dA there is a watermark and the resolution is smaller. How did Chester get a different copy of the image file?
